Pompeii - Bastille

I was left to my own devices
Many days fell away with nothing to show


And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above


But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all
?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this
?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?

We were caught up and lost in all of our vices
In your pose as the dust settles around us

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above


But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all
?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before
?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this
?
If you close your eyes

Oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins?
Oh where do we begin?
The rubble or our sins
?

And the walls kept tumbling down
In the city that we love
Great clouds roll over the hills
Bringing darkness from above

But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
Nothing changed at all
?
And if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
You've been here before?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
How am I gonna be an optimist about this?
But if you close your eyes,
Does it almost feel like
